JP Manus handed over £1,000 to charity as Padraig Harrington ducked an embarrassing equipment clash at St Andrews.

McManus and Harrington were standing on the 18th tee at the Home of Golf when they were confronted with a Callaway long-driving competition designed to help raise funds for an Ernie Els sponsored autism programme.

Harrington's contract with Wilson runs out at the end of the season and with Callaway one of the big name manufacturers chasing his signature, it was no wonder the Dubliner didn't try the new club.

But McManus took the challenge and immediately handed a fistful of £20 pound notes to Callaway's Public Relations Manger, Sue Page, who was overseeing the fund-raiser.

Callaway have promised to donate a sum of money based on the distance players hit their drives beyond a certain mark.

And they got a nice bonus from McManus, who hit his drive and then handed over fifty £20 notes.
